    I think it's called a "slide".

    I don't think there's any slide work on Get Up, it was recorded on a Steinberger.

    Which part of the song sounds to you like it's a slide part?

    I hear what your saying dude, but it's the trams trem that make it's sound like that. Ed can make some burly sounds indeed with whatever he is playing no doubt. Out.

    what is a trans trem?

    maybe he could also be doing it with just his fingers and no slide.

    is this the same thing he does in BALLOT OR THE BULLET?

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I'm not a guitar expert by any stretch of the imagination, but a trans trem is a tremolo system that allows the user to lock the tremolo in any spot. For example, if Eddie pulls the tremolo upwards, he can then lock the thing so that the entire guitar is now in a different key. And it can be locked anywhere.

    This tremolo system was used by Eddie with the Steinberger guitars that Eddie uses on LWAN on Get Up. He's used it on several other songs (Fire In the Hole, Summer Nights), and has Wolfie's with that type of tremolo system now.

    I think that's correct, but any mistakes here guitar players, feel free to set me straight.

    Yup Glenn summed it up pretty well, did anyone notice that solo(summernights) on LWAN that it sounds outta tune or something at the beggining of it? *I* think this has to do specifically with the trams tem. It musta locked up on Ed during that spot cause it sure sounds non-EVH to me, he's so note for note that I'd be surprised if it wasn't the trans trem locking up on him.

    BTW the trans trem only raises standard pitch 1 1/2 steps I believe ...
